This unique collection assembles writings in which Twain views the multifarious claims of religion -- metaphysical, moral, and political -- with a skeptical eye. The centerpiece of the book is the long philosophical dialogue, What Is Man?

Satirical novel by Mark Twain, the tale of a commonsensical Yankee who is carried back in time to Britain in the Dark Ages, and it celebrates homespun ingenuity and democratic values in contrast to the superstitious ineptitude of a feudal monarchy.
by Mark Twain - James R. Osgood & Co.
With its mixing of high adventure, raucous comedy, and scathing social criticism, presented in a hilarious vernacular that only Mark Twain could fashion, the book remains one of this incomparable humorist's most popular and oft-dramatized tales.
